RiVA MPEG player 0.53 is the latest update to the fastest MPEG player available on the classic 68k Amiga platform. It is based on the work of Stephen Fellner and László Török, extended by a lot of additional improvements in terms of runtime performance and audio/visual quality. RiVA served as the prominent testcase in the development cycle of the Apollo Core AMMX instruction set extension. The new updated RiVA MPEG player is for classic m68k compatible build (68040+) and AMMX build, exclusive to Apollo Core Gold 2.7 and newer. RiVA should work well with default settings and the aforementioned encoding parameters on Apollo Core Gold2. For optimal runtime performance, use full screen on SAGA RTG. The full source code is included, covered by the GNU general public license. The AGA and CGX renderers are available with dual licensing (GPL or MIT)
